Question: I've found the data I need in Bloomberg. How do I also find that data using the Excel API?

Answer


Use the Field Finder function (FLDS) to locate fields and their mnemonics.

In the amber boxes, choose a security in the top box and begin searching for the name of the data field in the box below. The table will display the ID, mnemonic, and most recent value. Use the "Options" menu on this screen if you cannot see all the columns.

This command is useful if you are composing formulas in the Excel API and need mnemonic codes.
